Malik Obama's Message for the Jews

I'm not sure why, but I found this message from Malik Obama -- Barack's Kenyan half-brother -- really touching:
The half-brother of U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama, Malik Obama, told Army Radio on Thursday that Obama would make a good president for Jews.

Malik Obama, a Muslim who resides in a small village in western Kenya, also requested to send a special blessing to the Jewish people around the world from the Obama family in Kenya.

It's not really politically relevant -- there's a reason why it's being printed in Ha'aretz rather than an American paper -- but again, it was nice.

Have you ever heard the phrase "hardened suspects" before? :)

I just read it here:

... in the second paragraph.

No, really: what exactly are "hardened suspects" ?
